Getting Ready for September 2021

Welcome to F2 2021!  We are so very excited that you have chosen Shinfield Infant and Nursery School for your child’s next steps and thank you for this. We are very much looking forward to getting to know you and your children.  You should now have received your child’s Welcome Pack electronically. Please complete this as soon as you are able to do so.  This will really help us get to know you, your child and how best we can support you.

We have three classes in F2: Birch, Maple and Willow.  To help you understand and find out more about joining our school, we will be adding items to this page over the next few weeks.  We hope you and your family will find them useful.  Items will include a slide pack to help you understand our staff structure, our day and the outlook to our year together.  Lots of photographs and videos will also be available here of our staff, classrooms and key areas for you to explore at home.

If you are part of Facebook, please join our recently established F2 Facebook Group where you can meet new friends and get to know our fabulous, fun F2 community.  This group is run by the teaching staff of F2.  Please search for the group ‘Shinfield Infants Foundation 2 New Starters September 2021-2022’ and answer the security questions detailed.

Our September Starters 2021 meetings can be booked online. At these meetings you will meet the teaching team and receive details of your child’s class and teacher. You will see an example of a typical school day in F2 alongside our exciting curriculum that your child will participate in.  You will also receive details of your child’s Stay and Play session organised for Thursday 15th July.

A Transition Workshop is also scheduled for Thursday 15th July with our school Parent Support Advisor for those parents who would like help and ideas on how to prepare their children and settle them into school life; again you will receive more information on this session at our September Starters 2021 meetings.

Please be certain to book a time as soon as you can. Our evening sessions are always popular.  These meetings are a super opportunity for gathering information on all the things you can do to help prepare your child for their first few weeks with us.

In the meantime, if you have any questions please direct them to and mark them ‘For the attention of Mrs Foldvari’.

The team here at Shinfield Infant School look forward to welcoming you and your family soon.

With our very best wishes,

Team F2
